Basilica du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, Paris

(4.4/5 based on 22,000+ reviews on the web)
You'll recognize Basilica du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre by its picture-perfect white stone. The basilica remains white even with weathering and pollution, due to its construction with travertine stone, which exudes the mineral calcite. Before entering, take a look up at the Equestrian Statue of King Saint Louis on the left and the Equestrian Statue of Saint Joan of Arc on the right. When you enter, you're surrounded by interesting artifacts and art, including the mosaic in the apse entitled "Christ in Majesty,” which is among the largest in the world. Join the daily Catholic mass or meditate at the fountain in the gardens. Using our world travel planner, Paris attractions like Basilica du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
